Lee Ranaldo and The Dust
Last Night On Earth

Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo hits double-figures for solo LPs with Last Night On Earth. Written in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy - an event that left the Manhattanite Ranaldo and his family without electricity, hear and running water - this album is decidedly more pensive than 2012’s peppy Between The Times And The Tides. Backed by The Dust, Ranaldo’s meditations on life and society are swelled to a point where they resemble Idlewild and Red House Painters.

Deer Tick
Negativity

Deer Tick take their indie-rock round the full-length block for a fifth time on Negativity. As sure as night follows day, indie-rock bands will eventually end up sounding like Neil Young. Or so the saying goes. Vanessa Carlton turns up on a track to ram it tearfully home. On CD and double LP from Partisan.

Hanni El Khatib
Head In The Dirt

Hanni El Khatib’s music is that sort of garage-punk that, while still ramshackle enough to pass for Proper Rock Music, also has enough vogueish cool to it to bring in a lot of endorsements from big-time sportswear brands. As such, it’s no surprise to find out that The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach has put his grubby mitts all over Khatib’s sophomore full-length Head In The Dirt. Somewhere in Manhattan there is a model who owns a ‘vintage-look’ turntable and only one record. Head In The Dirt is that record.

Placebo
Loud Like Love

We might want to mock Placebo at every turn but there's no denying their longevity. Loud Like Love was their 2013 album which say the three piece explore themes of love in all its forms. They pondered stuff like why does everyone have so many friends on the internet and if someone robbed a bank would you still love them. Deep stuff which undoubtedly sold truckloads of copies across Europe.

Drenge
Face Like A Skull

When it came to finding a name for the band, the Derbyshire two-piece drew inspiration from the Danish word for boys: 'drenge.' this decision, one assumes, must have been met with a degree of irony. Intended or not, there is nothing at all young about their sound. This record is an ambitious start to a musical career with much promise.

Volcano Choir
Repave

Featuring Starbucks-friendly indie type Bon Iver alongside members of The Portable Quartet, Collections of Colonies of Bees and Pele, Volcano Choir make indie and folk music with the grandeur of post-rock. Their second album 'Repave' found fans in those aforementioned groups, and even those who weren't a fan of their usual pretty folky sounds.

Porcelain Raft
Permanent Signal

Permanent Signal is the (difficult) second album from Porcelain Raft.  The atmospheric indie Secretly Canadian is known for is fully intact, here. Classic second album tropes of a more ‘studio’ sounding production and themes of transition and dislocation permeate. On CD and Vinyl in time for long nights in.

Grant Hart
The Argument

Grant Hart was, of course, one half of Husker Du. His solo career didn't quite reach the dizzy heights of that of bandmate Bob Mould but was still a worthwhile exercise. The Argument was his fifth solo album and continues his foray into grown-up pop music without losing the sense of adventure heard in his early work. Sadly it proved to be his final solo album and Hart died five years later on 2017.

Rainer Ptacek
Barefoot Rock with Das Combo

Rainer Ptacek And Das Combo’s Barefoot Rock With Rainer And Das Combo gets re-reissued courtesy of Fire Records. The extra ‘re’ there isn’t a typo - this LP initially saw daylight in 1986, but what we’ve got our hands on here is the 1994 version that fleshed out the original record with four more tracks. Whenever it’s from, this is a collection of backroom blues for the ages.

Robert Pollard
Honey Locust Honky Tonk

Guided By Voices’ Robert Pollard seems to be pathologically incapable of not releasing music. One of the several million records he’s put out in his incredibly prolific career is 2013’s Honey Locust Honky Tonk, a solo LP of cerebral rock vignettes. The dreamier corners of The Shins and Eels are invoked by this sweet set.

Queens Of The Stone Age
...Like Clockwork

...Like Clockwork was the sixth album from Josh Homme and his desert rockers Queens of the Stone Age. It was one of their most focussed offerings yet and combined their radio-friendly dusty rock with some more darker moods inspired by a difficult year as drummer Joey Castillo left during the making of the record. Features an array of guests such as Alex Turner, Jake Shears and Sir Elton John.

Bass Drum Of Death
Bass Drum Of Death

With a name like that, you can only expect the very most of Bass Drum of Death.  A noisy swagger dripping from this self-titled release, this is rock. For a second album, you can hear changes going on in John Garrett’s head, songs bubbling to the surface in the wake of his debut. Great in its own right, and a promise of what lies ahead.

Any Love is Good Love

Collated as a response to the hateful Daily Mail’s outing of a transgender person, which led to a violent assault, this compilation is a roaring collection of everything from defiant punk, indie pop and more introspective pieces. With a foreword by Stonewall campaigner Peter Tatchell. Proceeds go to Youth LGBT Manchester. CD from Liminal Noise.

Phoenix
Bankrupt

How to follow up a record like Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, a record that was a smash with the hip indie fan and the pop lover alike? Bankrupt is Phoenix’s answer, maintaining the busy yet smooth sounds we previously enjoyed, with perhaps just a little more heft. Just right for your light and breezy summer road-trip.

The Pigeon Detectives
We Met At Sea

Leeds quintet The Pigeon Detectives are back with their fourth studio album: We Met At Sea. This record sees the band go back to basics, in a search for the simple indie sound that defined their earlier success. An upbeat sound paves the way on this record; it sees the popular noughties band reach new heights.

Deerhunter
Monomania

Deerhunter’s ‘Monomania’ may divide fans, but those who are into it absolutely adore their sixth studio LP. While the group may have developed a reputation as ambient-punk pioneers par excellence, ‘Monomania’ is more fraught and twisted, the group frequently interrupting their lilting rock tunes with screes of noise. Band leader Bradford Cox (Atlas Sound) also delivers some of his most caustic and vital performances to date.

Guided By Voices
English Little League

English Little League was the fourth Guided By Voices album to be recorded in the fruitful reconvening of the 'classic line up' in the early two thousand and teens or whatever we've decided to call them. Along with such albums as The Bears for Lunch, it is remarkably consistent seeing as though the band recorded six albums in this period. Always inventive, it's one of those albums that after a few listens you wonder how you'd lived without.

The Raincoats
Extended Play

Following their 1994 reformation, the Raincoats recorded a Peel Session which consisted of tracks new and old. Whether it was the excitement of playing together again or the appearance of Steve Shelley on drums, it resulted in a brilliant session and a compact, pocketbook guide as to all that is good about the Raincoats.

The Growlers
Hung At Heart

The third LP from surf-rockers The Growlers Hung At Heart arrives on Fatcat Records. Nothing to reinvent the wheel here, just a collection of feel-good ‘60s fetishism in the vein of Allah-Las, The Black Keys and such like. One noteworthy feature is Hung At Heart’s production, a sound so scrupulously retro that it takes on a hauntingly hypnagogic quality.

This Town Needs Guns
13.0.0.0.0

A new generation of math kids is led by This Town Needs Guns, who assess the inventiveness and kinetic energy of bands like Ghosts and Vodka and Minus the Bear by way of the sadder, more melancholy works of early indie rock bands -- take the Smiths, and maybe some goth from the Cure. 13.0.0.0.0 shows how to meld pastoral finger-pickin' good times with the technical savvy of math rock.

Foxygen
We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic

Californian duo Foxygen's second long player, 'We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic', is a trip though sunny, folk-inspired psychedelia. Despite a decidedly retro feel, there's still a welcome inclusion of warm, buttery, analogue synthesizers that expand the scope of this record and nullify some of the nostalgic nonsense. Fans of The Beatles, Beach Boys, and all things California Sound will appreciate. Out on Jagjaguwar.
